We were only in Rome for one night and this place was close to our hotel, so we gave it a shot. The food was delicious and the staff were friendly. We especially liked their ravioli.

Our hotel recomend this restaurant. A very non touristy place. The staff spoke little english but managed very well to make us feel welcome. Great food and an engaged somaliere. I definitely recomend this restaurant.

The wine list is interestingly different, food nice but service is slow and inefficient and the restaurant is physically too small to for larger groups. Definitely not recommended for children who,in our case, were generally ignored (water and bread had to be chased various times).More

Causy and wellrun small trattoria. Food comes from bio produce and selected sources. home made pasta with traditional condiments, meats and cheeses good. Notabl deserts. The owner will always give you an advice to select the proper wine (glass too). Hard to park.

We ate here between locals with our two sons and were positively surprised by the ambiance, the friendly help and the outstanding flavours and textures we were served. A Roman delight.

The ravioli was absolutely fantastic. They also have a dish of the day that is very reasonable and tasty. When my wife was feeling a little ill, they sent the food to the apartment that we rented a few blocks away.

Gourmet cuisine, feminine. In the center of Rome, in a pleasant neighborhood just outside Porta Pia, quiet and hard-working day as teeming with local in the evening, the Osteria dell'Arco stands out with its elegant atmosphere, welcoming and informal, enclosed in two vaults with exposed brick and elegant woodwork full of bottles of wine. Even the sound environment suffused choice contributes to the comfort and identity of our local. In 2008, when we opened the teeming neighborhood of pizzerias and restaurants by "plethoric" menu and the quality is not in line with what was then moving in the City. We were the first in the area to choose a short menu, wine selections cured and not obvious, simple and gourmet cuisine at the same time: we note with great satisfaction that in recent years our area - the neighborhood around Piazza Alessandria - it always is for the most distinguishing offer new quality entry. The protagonists of this small restaurant, are two women (added value and reached laboriously), Nicoletta and Cristina. love cooking than once, the kitchen from long cooking, the simplicity, but that never turns into the obvious, that respect the material they are made. Products to KM 0, very often organic and small-scale producers. The menus follow the seasons and daily proposals are told verbally. The kitchen pays homage to all of Italy with particular attention to Rome, to the south from Naples to Sicily and then fill in the fresh pasta and stuffed pasta, typical of Emilian cuisine - the land of origin of Cristina, the Chef - strictly homemade . And so the bread, cakes, preserves and ice cream. All accompanied by about 150 Italian wine labels, the choice of which never falls on the usual suspects and a small part of foreign wines for 'playing' time with the regulars because with our new guests.
